The Knowe Garden Services

Who we are…

The Knowe Garden Services is a social enterprise company, within the business wing of Auchinleck Community Development Initiative (ACDI). Any profits from the business are used to make ACDI more sustainable and assist it in its endeavours to increase employment opportunities and other benefits for people, not only in Auchinleck but also in the surrounding districts.
The Knowe Garden Services aim to provide a quality and cost effective service to its clients, where they be a local resident or a large organisation. We endeavour to work closely with our clients to ensure that we meet their expectations and our straightforward and honest approach has lead to building good relationships with our customers and we carry out repeat business on a regular basis for a large number of our customers.

What we do…

Garden Tidy Up

Clear away the mess, start afresh

We offer:

  • A tidy up before the season begins to allow you to focus on what you plan to do with your gardens in the Summer saving you having to do a lot of heavy work and clearing at the start of the season.
  • Leaf clearance in the Autumn and clearing away any arisings.
  • Pruning of shrubs, hedge cutting and the removal of arisings.
  • Waste collection

Grass Cutting & Ground Maintenance

Fresh, tidy lawns

We offer:

  • All operatives are trained in the use of the machinery they will be using to ensure the safety of themselves, customers, others and pets.
  • Pre and end of season cuts
  • Grass maintenance of large areas of land with heavy duty ride-on and pedestrian mower (Scags and Isekis) and general grass cutting with smaller machinery.
  • Strimming and cutting areas to meet environmental standard with regards to flora, fauna and wild life.
  • Hedge cutting


Single slated, double slated and bamboo covers

We offer:

  • APL can build garden fencing and all the timber we use is pressure treated for extended life.
  • We will arrange for a member of our team to come to your home and give you a price for a finished job. There is no obligation with this service.
  • We can assure you that all work will be done to a professional standard.
  • We offer bamboo covers to make security fencing more pleasing to the eye.

Pesticide/Herbal Application

Licenced and Qualified Pesticide Application

We offer:

In the UK it is a legal requirement for people who are professionally spraying pesticides/herbicides to hold an NPTC (now City & Guilds Land Based Services) pesticides certificate of competence, otherwise known as a spraying certificate or a pesticide license. All APL staff undertaking pesticides/herbicide application are qualified to NPTC PA1/2/6AW standards so that they can safely and legally use pesticides / herbicide with hand held and tractor mounted application equipment.

The above will ensure that customers know

  • That the correct substance has been selected to control weeds, fungi or other horticultural problems.
  • That they will be meeting the required environmental standard to ensure the integrity of flora, fauna and wild life.
